Waldron has to be hurting after a devastating 47 – 14 defeat at the hands of Ozark.
Waldron struggled getting any offense going throughout the first quarter, however Ozark didn’t have any problems at all jumping out quickly 21-0. The first play of the first quarter, along with the first play of the second quarter resulted in Ozark touchdowns.
Ozark’s offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 35 points in the first half. That put it at a 35 – 7 advantage. It only pulled further ahead in the second half, where it scored 12 points compared to Waldron’s seven.
Waldron did manage to get on the board before half time due to a big interception coming from Levi Franklin, and followed two plays later by a Levi Hayden touchdown. Making the half time score 35-7, in Ozark’s favor. Ozark went on to win the contest 47-14. Waldron drops to 2-2 on the year and 0-1 in conference.
The win bumped Ozark’s record up to 3-1. Waldron dropped down to.500 with a 2-2 record.
